|Long-term objectives remain as:|
1. provide a decision-support tool that creates landscape-level forest management zones while considering timber and non-timber objectives simultaneously, suitable for use in north-eastern BC;
2. explore zoning configurations that maintain economic viability while also maintaining ecological and social objectives; and
3. provide a conservation plan that permits economic forestry over an area of about 18 million ha.
